A picture says a thousand words

October 25, 2010

With Halloween right around the corner, students across the nation are putting together their costumes to don at parties and festivities. Dozens of pictures will be taken…many in a party setting. In a world with ever increasing exposure and instant coverage, students and up and coming professionals need to be weary of what they tweet, post and blog.

Your online image is an important package as a public relations professional. You are a commodity in the business world, and need to keep a watchful eye on your branding and positioning. Privacy settings are an important factor. If you choose to let it all hang out online, make sure your Twitter and Facebook have restricted viewing. A picture says a thousand words, so make sure to check through your tagged photos from the holiday weekend.

As college students, this is our time to have fun. Make sure to do so in a responsible way, and to show prospective employers that the party scene isn’t what defines you. We can still have fun and be young while being responsible and maintaining a respectable and professional image.
